Dr. Ryan Cowan, DDS at Cowan Family Dentistry  provides treatment for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea using an FDA approved, custom fitted oral appliance. The device works by positioning the lower jaw forward during sleep, keeping the airway open. It fits in the palm of your hand, requires no electricity, wires or tubes and is easily packed into luggage for travel.

How it works:

  1. Schedule a screening at our office
  2. If the screening indicates you are at risk for OSA, we will arrange a Home Sleep Test
  3. Sleep in your own bed while the device monitors your sleep
  4. Results from the test are downloaded and sent to a board-certified Sleep Physician for review and diagnosis
  5. If the physician recommends Oral Appliance Therapy, we will take impressions of your teeth and create a custom device for you
  6. After the device is made, it may require adjustments to ensure optimal airflow
  7. A follow up home sleep test is used to verify the device is working as intended
  8. Cowan Family Dentistry is IN-Network with all major medical insurance providers

TMJ/TMD, Migraine/Chronic Headache and associated conditions

TMJ/TMD is treated using a state-of-the-art bite force analysis to quickly and accurately diagnose underlying issues. Chronic headache and migraine therapies include cold laser, microcurrent, therapeutic ultrasound, ROM (range of motion), ultrasound and manual manipulation techniques.

How it works:

  1. Schedule a screening at our office
  2. If the screening indicates you are a candidate for TMJ/TMD, migraine/chronic headache, orofacial pain, tinnitus or vertigo we will schedule the appropriate follow-up testing
  3. The results of the test will direct your treatment plan
  4. Each treatment plan is tailored to address the individual patient’s symptoms, and includes the use of several FDA-cleared, painless technologies, including ultrasound, low-level cold laser, microcurrent, and trigger point manipulation
  5. Different symptoms require from one to twelve treatments, each one hour long and completed weekly
